LIFETIME BRINGS PORTABILITY TO A NEW LEVEL
June 13, 2000
CLEARFIELD, Utah -- Lifetime Products, Inc., the world's leading manufacturer and innovator of home basketball equipment, has brought portability to a new level with the Navigator Portable Base, proving that not all portable systems are created equal.
The Navigator comes equipped with a streamlined handle that is designed to fasten to the basketball pole. When pulled down, the handle engages a caster wheel on the front of the base allowing the entire system to rotate a full 360 degrees.
"Lifetime has taken a good idea and made it great," says Marketing Director Aaron Hill. "The Navigator is portability made easy. It allows a person to move and position a system without having to tip it. You simply pull, position and play."
Portable basketball systems currently on the market require a player to tilt the system and maneuver it by grabbing the rim and dragging. In some instances, larger competing portable systems are too heavy to tip and require siphoning out the water or using a shop vacuum to remove the sand.
"With new Navigator technology, a player is able to move a large portable system without the annoyance of having to empty the ballast," says Hill.
